What is a Hazard Mitigation Plan? 

A Hazard Mitigation Plan serves as a guiding framework for Kinneloa Irrigation District, shaping decisions and policies aimed at mitigating risks to both life and property. This comprehensive plan assesses the various hazards threatening the service area, evaluates vulnerability, and formulates a strategy to reduce or eliminate associated risks. Actions and projects outlined in the plan, such as infrastructure retrofitting or the addition of storm drains, aim to prevent damage and ensure a swift recovery from hazard events.

Why is a Hazard Mitigation Plan Important? 

The significance of the plan lies in its alignment with the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000, a congressional mandate. To be eligible for specific Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other hazard mitigation funds, all forms of local government must maintain an approved hazard mitigation plan. These funds are crucial for implementing hazard mitigation programs, disrupting the cycle of disaster, damage, restoration, and recurring damage.

Why your input is needed? 

Your input is vital for the plan's effectiveness. To thoroughly identify and plan for future disasters, Kinneloa Irrigation District seeks your thoughts on the hazards and mitigation strategies outlined in the Hazard Mitigation Plan. Your valuable input will contribute to the overall success of the plan and help in creating a resilient and secure community.
